A new report from UW-Milwaukee examines how comfortable older LGBT people feel about aging in the Milwaukee area.
Researcher and social work assistant professor Mark Williams collected the comments of 255 LGBT residents, between the ages of 50 and 89.
His study reveals areas respondents say need extensive improvement, such as housing.
Williams says a significant number of respondents believe they’ll eventually live in an assisted living facility or nursing home. Yet he says most fear they won’t feel safe or comfortable in such a setting.
